What factors affect how you feel and the result you get from testosterone therapy?
The most common reasons NOT to get the “great results” you can experience with testosterone pellets are:
STRESS: increased stress, either physical, mental, or emotional stress will definitely affect how you feel physically and emotionally. Stress can also affect how long the pellets last, meaning symptoms could return weeks sooner.
LACK OF CONSISTENT EXERCISE: exercise which raises your heart rate is a wonderful stress reliever. It also increases energy metabolism and decreases anxiety. Exercise improves sleep patterns too. The best results from pellets are seen in people who exercise.
DIET: a diet high in refined foods like breads and pastries and processed carbohydrates, and low in fat will affect your testosterone. Whole foods (Think of food that you look at and recognize as something that exists in nature naturally), good fats (vegetable oils such as olive, canola, sunflower, soy, and corn), nuts, seeds, fish, and protein can beneficially affect mood and energy. Testosterone increases muscle mass and gets rid of fat deposits. Weight loss usually seen with testosterone therapy is usually prevented due to refined carbohydrates like white flour, white bread, white rice, pastries, sodas, snacks, pasta, sweets, breakfast cereals, and added sugars.
LACK of SUNLIGHT: the lack of sunlight will affect mood, sense of well-being and physical activity, and energy.
HIGH ESTROGEN: fluid retention, weight gain, breast pain, anxiety, PMS, insulin resistance, and lack of “sense of well-being” are all symptoms of excess estrogen. Often women cannot lose weight when they have high levels of estrogen. Testosterone can convert to estradiol which is one way the body naturally makes healthy levels of estrogen. Exercise, whole foods, fiber, losing weight, and getting rid of refined carbs can help lower estrogen levels.
